Holland Holiday Craft Fair
Shop til you drop as you scout over 125 vendors at this year's Holiday Arts and Crafts Show at the Holland Civic Center.
The sale runs on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be tons of Michigan-made items, so shoppers can finish all their holiday shopping in one easy stop.
Tickets are $3 per person and can be purchased at the door or in advance at holland.org.
You better not pout, you better not cry, but you might be doing both if you miss out on the chance to take your kids on the Santa Train at the Coopersville and Marne Railway.
The annual tradition is back with you and the family hopping aboard the vintage train that has a seat specially reserved for the big guy. Storytelling princesses will read Christmas stories as you and the kids await a visit from Saint Nick.
The train runs every Saturday and Sunday until December 18. Masks are required.
Tickets are available for this 90-minute experience at cpmy.net.
